As the search for the next Uganda Cranes head coach intensifies, local football custodian FUFA have confirmed 245 applicants for the hot seat
The seat fell vacant after FUFA parted ways with head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic two weeks ago. Micho had held the role for the past two years.
The Federation has confirmed that only two Ugandan coaches have expressed interest in taking on the job. The other 243 were non-natives. However, FUFA did not disclose the candidates (Ugandan and non-Ugandan).
This development comes just in time as football enthusiasts demanded that a Ugandan native be appointed.
FUFA has also confirmed that only two Ugandan coaches have applied for the Assistant Coach job out of 34 applicants. The eventual appointee will replace former deputy head coach Moses Basena.
For the Goalkeeping Coach role, only one Ugandan has shown interest out of seven candidates. Fred Kajoba has held the post for the past years.
It’s still unclear when the federation intends to announce the next holders of the vacant positions. Uganda currently has a World Cup qualification campaign to deal with.
